If I were to take an IQ test and have my score compared to that of someone who is an analytical thinker, I would more than likely be predicted to not make as good of grades are go as far in life as the other person. That is what the IQ test does, and if it is going to be used, schools cannot interpret the results literally.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
